Hulk's price was bumped up because of his partnership with Rademel Falcao, in the same way the Ba-Ibisevic-Obasi triangle drove up their prices while at Hoffenheim.

Regardless, no sportsman is worth 1ME, let alone 80ME. Worth and cost are not the same thing.

CARDIFF CITY could be set to strengthen their ties with Malaysia even further with the arrival of one of the Asian nation’s hottest young talents in the Welsh capital.

Bluebirds’ boss Malky Mackay is back from Malaysia today after holding discussions to bring 17-year-old midfielder Nazmi Faiz to the club on a year’s placement.

Faiz shot to prominence last year when he became the youngest player in the Malaysia Olympic squad for the South East Asia Games in Jakarta.

He is part of the Malaysian set-up trying to qualify for the football tournament at this summer’s Olympics in London.

The pacy youngster also scored a superb first international goal for his nation against Bahrain last year.

Mackay has been in Malaysia looking at the initiative to further links between the country and the Bluebirds called 1Malaysia Cardiff City.

Chairman Dato Chan Tien Ghee and financial backer Vincent Tan both hail from Malaysia and are keen to see closer relations between their homeland and the club.

The Bluebirds have already given trials to striker Safee Sali and Malaysian national team captain Safiq Rahim, but with Sali aged 27, and Rahim 24, Faiz is seen much more likely to make the breakthrough.

And he could now have 12 months to develop under Mackay and his staff.

Cardiff chairman TG certainly believes there is plenty of young talent in Malaysia which could benefit the Bluebirds.

“Malaysia possesses a vast pool of talented and skilled footballers as well as many aspiring ones,” said TG.

“Safee and Safiq Rahim were at Cardiff for trials and both were exposed to different kinds of training,”

“We will continue to give opportunities to players and coaches as the club are a part of Malaysia.”

Discussions are on-going to bring Faiz to the Welsh capital for a year.

Mackay believes any Malaysian players hoping to make it in British football would need plenty of time to acclimatise.

“Safee adapted very well in training as he easily picked up the drills with the first team, and as for Safiq, he was smaller in size but technically gifted,” said Mackay.

“The pace and tempo of the game in United Kingdom is quicker and one needs to be physically strong to make it and Safee did well.

“However, a player needs to spend a couple of years to adapt to our football and also learn about the physical, nutritional and fitness aspects of it. A younger player will be better.”

Mackay has already handed first-team football to 18-year-old Joe Ralls this season and it looks likely Faiz will be given the same chance now to show what he can do in the Welsh capital.

“When I was manager of Watford, the club was financially restricted and we decided to invest in youth development as we had a good academy,” added Mackay.

“In Cardiff we also believe in development and one of our products was Aaron Ramsey, who worked his way through the club’s youth system.”

“We have given some of our youth players first team action and they have responded well.”

Cardiff also offered Malaysian under-23 coach Ong Kim Swee the chance to spend time at the club to work with backroom staff, but the former international player looks unlikely to be able to take up the offer due to work commitments.

Haha yes. He's the most exciting prospect now in our country, and good to see him going abroad. Only thing I'm scared of is that he probably can't resist Nandos and the pubs over there Razz

Regarding the "Link" thing, when click on the "link" option , you can see 2 boxes. First box is where you post the link, and the box below it is what you wanna name your link. It won't work on "Quick Reply" option so you have to use the normal "Post A Reply" option. The "link" option is beside the "Flash" and "Image".

this one :

Paste your link in the first box, and put in "LINK" or "John Terry's Mum Tesco HAHAHA" or whatever at the bottom box to name your link. Hope this helps!

Tevez said no to PSG and wants to go to Milan. After Becks and Pato the third player who didn't come.

New targets should be Kaka and Alex.

Götze out another 6 to 8 weeks. The kid played too much (same like Jack).

Spanish newspapers: Mourinho to leave Real this summer.

Ibisevic (the man who scored 18 goals in 17 matches in 2008/2009) from Hoffenheim to Stuttgart.

Hoffenheim sold Carlos Eduardo (Rubin, 20 million), Luiz Gustavo (Bayern, 17 million), Ba (WHU, 2 million) and now Ibisevic (Stuttgart, 5.5 million) during the last years. Obasi went on loan to Schalke.

Lille should sell Hazard now, because he's not going to the Euros - once that tournament starts people will be more focused on other kids. Its either now or early in the summer.

And we should be the buyers.

twitter was saying the L'equipe were reporting that we'd agreed terms with LOSC. Dunno how true that is though

I really hope thats true we can get Hazard. He's said in the past that we're one of the clubs he'd love to play for someday.
Anyway, Lille's president says he's leaving in the summer for sure

www.sportsmole.co.uk/football/transfer-talk/news/hazard-leaving-lille-in-june_14821.html

So we're probably not signing him now:( sadness how the transfer window trickles to a nothingness end for us.

This might even deserve a topic of it's own. Absolutely tragic

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-16845841

At least 74 people have been killed in clashes between rival fans following a football match in the Egyptian city of Port Said.

Scores were injured as fans - reportedly armed with knives - invaded the pitch after a match between top-tier clubs al-Masry and al-Ahly.

Officials fear the death toll could rise further.

It is the biggest disaster in the country's football history, said the Egyptian deputy health minister.

"This is unfortunate and deeply saddening," Hesham Sheiha told state television.

Some of the dead were security officers, the Associated Press news agency quoted a morgue official as saying.

The BBC's Jon Leyne in Cairo says it appears some fans had taken knives into the stadium.

Our correspondent says the lack of the usual level of security in the stadium might have contributed to the clashes.

Police in Egypt have been keeping a much lower profile since last year's popular protests that ousted President Hosni Mubarak from power.

Egyptian fans are notoriously violent, says our correspondent, particularly supporters of al-Ahly known as the Ultras.

They have been heavily implicated in confronting the police during recent political protests, our correspondent adds. There is speculation that the security forces may have had an interest in taking on al-Ahly supporters.

'Black day'
Wednesday's violence broke out at the end of the match, which, unusually, Port Said side al-Masry won 3-1.

Witnesses said the atmosphere had been tense throughout the match - since an al-Ahly fan raised a banner insulting supporters of the home team.

As the match ended, their fans flooded onto the pitch attacking Ahly players and fans.

A small group of riot police tried to protect the players, but were overwhelmed.

Part of the stadium was set on fire.

Officials say most of the deaths were caused by concussions, deep cuts to the heads and suffocation from the stampede.

"This is not football. This is a war and people are dying in front of us," al-Ahly player Mohamed Abo Treika said.

Hani Seddik, who played for al-Ahly as a teenager, told the BBC: "I don't think this is about football. These trouble-makers were not football fans."

"How were they allowed to carry knives into the ground? To me, this is the actions of people who do not want the country to be stable and want to put off tourists from coming here," said Mr Seddik, who was watching the match on TV in Cairo.

Meanwhile, the Muslim Brotherhood - which has emerged as Egypt's biggest party in recent elections - blamed supporters of ousted President Hosni Mubarak for the violence.

"The events in Port Said are planned and are a message from the remnants of the former regime," Muslim Brotherhood lawmaker Essam al-Erian said.

He went on by saying that the army and police wanted to silence critics demanding an end to state of emergency in the country.

In Cairo, another match was halted by the referee after news of the Port Said violence. It prompted fans to set parts of the stadium on fire.

All premier-league matches have been cancelled and the newly-elected Egyptian parliament is to hold an emergency session on Thursday.

Fifa President Sepp Blatter later issued a statement, expressing his shock over the incident.

"This is a black day for football. Such a catastrophic situation is unimaginable and should not happen," he said.
